David Cameron: Conservatives will have first black or Asian PM

Earlier this morning, Prime Minister David Cameron said that the Conservatives will be the first party in the UK to have a black or Asian PM.

“The prime minister told an audience in south London he looked forward to the day, as he outlined plans to increase the number of ethnic minority Tory MPs,” reports BBC.

“In 2015, [the Conservatives are] fielding 56 candidates from black and Asian communities. Labour is fielding 52 ethnic minority candidates.

“‘We are the first party to have a female prime minister, we were the party of the first Jewish prime minister and I know one day, we are going to be the party of the first black or Asian prime minister,’ [said Cameron].”
